for chuck. >> and the big premier tonight. >> did mitt romney have a better wednesday than super tuesday? as the political world wakes up? it's clear mitt romney did well thanks to 12,000 votes in ohio. like all romney victories this year, it comes with a caveat. as santorum takes a stronger claim as the conservative alternative. despite all the results, all the new delegates, the story is the same, romney has a perception problem. santorum has a math problem. and as for paul and gingrich, they simply have a candidate credibility problem. and president obama doesn't sit super tuesday out. his first 2012 press conference includes a sharp rebuke of the republican candidates that he says are beating the drums of war when it comes to iran. it's wednesday, the day after, march 7th, 2012. this is the daily rundown. super tuesday is behind us. let's get to the first reads of the morning. mitt romney won the raw popular vote. he won states in five time zones, and still, all that comes with a but. romney continues to struggle with the same parts of the party he struggled with the entire campaign.
'm the one candidate who has the ability to debate barack obama decisively. >> mitt romney, rick santorum, and newt gingrich each putting their spin on how they did in last night's super tuesday races. the state everyone was watching, though, ohio. it spent a good part of the night in the too close to call, but at 12:30 eastern time this morning, called romney the apparent winner in a one-point close shave over santorum. we'll explain what that means. it remains the apparent category because ohio averages a 3% uncounted election night vote even when at 99% reporting. then just before 4:00 a.m. eastern time, nbc news declared romney the projected winner in alaska's republican caucus. romney also won big in the idaho caucuses. and he took massachusetts, vermont, and virginia. rick santorum countered last night with primary victories in oklahoma and tennessee. he also won the north dakota caucuses and newt gingrich also chalked up a win with 47% of the vote in his home state of georgia. the former house speaker is vowing to fight on with primaries next week in alabama and mississippi. in all

get out. mitt romney wants them both gone. will the march through march push anybody to the breaking point? team obama starts hammering romney from the other side as hom me in struggles with his own party's primary. they define him as an unacceptable alternative and romney can fully fight back. john boehner butts heads can fellow republicans over billions of dollars for roads, rails and bridges. can he get the tea party base to govern? good morning from washington. it's super thursday. this is "the daily rundown." let's get to the first read of the morning. super tuesday marks the beginning of the end. it's marked the beginning of the end of every competitive campaign for the last quarter century. for now, this republican race apparently is going on. mitt romney tries desperately behind the scenes to end it. the campaign spent much of yesterday making the case that neither santorum or gingrich has a realistic shot and brought out show and tell to highlight the advantage adding it would take an act of god for one of them to go. we will get to 1144 and be the republican nominee. that g
's such a super day. super tuesday has become super wednesday. mitt romney racking up six super states, including that classic cliff hanger in ohio. he's kind of talking like it's over, but did he land that knockout blow? >> no. >> if your support really means everything to ann and me, and i'm not going to let you down. i'm going to get this nomination. >> while rick santorum wins three states because mitt romney still cannot convince conservatives that he's the man. we're taking a look at the exit polls. this is my favorite part actually. different numbers are revealing some big problems for the front-runner. christine romans is breaking it all down. she's going to talk about electability and the economy and what folks are saying about that. >> i'm not sure it's my favorite part because the information is so revealing or whether it's christine romans, who's my favorite person. we're going to get to her in a moment. but after taking the most states and the most delegates on super tuesday, mitt romney walking the walk and talking the talk, pretty much looking like the nominee, but all candidates a
romney go back to the lab and emerge with mitt romney 2.0, this is "now." joining me today, kurt anderson, host of studio 360 radio and john harwood, karen finney, and political analyst, john heileman. last night, mitt romney won the most states and extended his overall delegate lead to more than 200, but the bottom line is that he has not locked up the nomination, is he becoming a stronger candidate or a weaker one? folks? my thinking here is that this could be a pivot point for the team romney, not just going back to the lab but refining a message, making him a stronger candidate, there's a contention out there that he has been bloodied and bruised but this could be good. >> i'm feeing like we have read that and said that five or six times eer already. the question was would newt gingrich make him a better candidate. so far, i've not seen what we have seen in the democratic race as hillary and obama duked it out. obama ended up being a stronger candida candidate, but along with that we saw turn out and excitement in the democratic party only to up, which helped in the general.

if i didn't ask about super tuesday's results. governor romney won the big prize, ohio. do you believe the time has come for other candidates to now get out of the race? >> i would hope so, but i can't tell the other candidates what they should do. they have to make their own decisions. i'm aware how tough an environment this is and so they have to make up their own minds. it is a fact that the longer this drags out, the higher the negatives of mitt romney and the harder it will be to win the election in november. that's just fundamental facts. >> governor palin was on cnn last night saying she would leave the door open to her name being placed into nomination if there was a contested convent n convention. what was your reaction to that? >> glad to see that sarah is still willing to get into the arena. i greatly admire and respect her. sarah, i view it with great interest your comment last night. i also think that, you know, that this thing is going to be resolved hopefully sooner for mitt romney than later. >> senator mccain, i always appreciate your time. thank you. >> thank you, an

tuesday prize where the former house speaker finished in the top two. mitt romney talked about this fierce fight ahead. and he did that on cnbc "squawk box." take a listen. >> we've got the time and the resources and a plan to get all the delegates. we think that will get done before the convention, but one thing i can tell you for sure is, there's not going to be a brokered convention where some new person comes in and becomes a nominee. it's going to be one of the four people that are still running. >> so let's bring in our panel, liz, editor for associated press, nbc senior political editor mark murray, bob schrum, adviser to bob kerrey, and it is great to have you all here as we have our super tuesday hangovers together. liz, let's talk to you first. mitt romney pulls off the upset in ohio. "the cincinnati enquirer" nailed it saying "romney takes ohio barely," it's like the fight of the century, but if we take a look at this map, santorum taking nearly every ohio county, what does this do to the perception that he can't close the deal? >> well, i think what's happened is that rick sant

a numbers kim game. >> the math is not the issue, the issue is vision. the issue is governor romney outspending me 10-1 and still not able to close the deal. >> in a poll from alabama's state university, santorum is third with 17% of the vote. let's bring in this morning's political power panel, i'm joined by ann cornblue, political editor for "the washington post." former governor of ohio, ted strickland, and new york daily news columnist, s.e. cob. i want to start with you, ann, could santorum and gingrich split voters and that actually work to romney's advantage in the south? >> well, potentially, but with respect to santorum, that clip you played of him earlier saying it is not about the math, it really is. even if, now look, i don't want to downplay the stakes here, it is important whoever wins in the south symbolically. for mitt romney a win in the south suggests he has agree geographic reach. in newt gingrich's favor, it could be a huge win for him. if santorum wins, he'll say i'm the alternative to romney. in the end, neither of the states will decide who the nominee is. it
romney out to prove he can capture the cracker barrel contingent. will it be the sound and if fgu ri of newt gingrich that wins the day or will his results read like as i lay dying. both newt gingrich and santorum vow their staying in this race till the finish. >> we've been running a marathon breathing through a swizzle stick. that's what it felt like. we're just sucking hard on that stick trying to get as much air as we can in to keep ourselves alive. >> we stayed in the race for two reasons. i do not believe the other two candidates can beat obama, and i believe this race is the most important in our lifetime, and i will not leave the field. >> as delegate front-runner down played expectations before heading off to campaign in missouri, he decided to put another silver foot in his mouth talking southern song payteyton manning and professional football as only richie mitt can. >> i got a lot of friends. the owner of the miami dolphins and the new york jets both owners are friends of mine. >> nfl team owners, now joining nascar owners among the dear old friends of mitt. as jeff foxw

. and tonight they are showing. this mitt romney is winning among voters who say electability and the economy are their top priorities. and more than half of illinois voters tell us the economy is their number one issue. our exit polls show rick santorum is the top choice of, quote, very conservative voters. but when it comes to strong supporters of the tea party, mitt romney has a slight lead. we'll go into the numbers in more detail in just a moment. illinois is the biggest primary prize since florida. 54 delegates up for grabs tonight. but rick santorum is eligible to win but 44 of them. paper work problemsy the again. we are also hearing about trouble with some those ballots. steve brown has the latest on that and more from our exit polls coming up in just a moment. first to carl cammeron. campaign carl in illinois. it really sort of sounds like the expectations game wrapped up in what the two candidates are saying today and they tell a lot of the story. >> when candidates begin to make predictions and talk about the outcome, it's usually a pretty good sign of what they expect. in this ca
. no matter, what this will not be gingrich's last stand. >> long stretch ahead of us. mitt romney is looking for a knockout punch. >> if the polls are right, we will pick up some delegates. >> tonight, results on the way in contests that could change the republic race anger in afghanistan. protests grow in the wake of a u.s. soldier's alleged attack that killed 16 civilians. >> i have directed the pentagon to make sure that we spare no effort in conducting a full investigation. plus gunfire erupts at a memorial for the victims and more people are now dead. the homeless as walking high i hot spots. supporters say it helps them earn a living. critics argue it's just plain demeaning. we will hear from homeless folks themselves to find out what they think. and the jet pack pilot who took on a race car. election alert. first from fox this tuesday night. the first polls close just 90 section ago in the g.o.p. southern showdown. less than an hour now until all the voting is complete in mississippi and alabama and right now here's what we know. it is an interesting night for mitt romney in the state
to be particularly hard for romney, frankly. i've never bought the idea that a private equity guy will fix the economy, when the numbers are getting better, it's harder to make that case. >> that is anni interesting poi. if we talk about romney, he is the one that is supposed to be the money guy, business guy, this might seem to weirdly help santorum, news like this. >> you know, i think, we over stated how much the economy played well for romney. that was a theme that his campaign put out. i looked at the exit polls from ohio, those voters that were woerp eed about the economy, th was 73% of the voters they only sided with santorum over him. the idea that he is a businessman and help the economy is over stated. >> i agree with that, the thing that we miss about the economy in the story the last few years is not how it helped romney, it's how it has been the message for the republican party. it's look at the unemployment rate and how much insecurity do you feel right now, he is the president, he made it worse. that's the only message he wants to run on. the last month, the jobs report came
. here's how the poll has the republican presidential field. romney topping the field with 38% of the vote followed by santorum at 32%. newt gingrich and ron paul are both at 13%. when asked how the gop nominating process has affected people's view of the party -- >> not good. >> 40% say it's made them look at the party less favorably, 12% said more favorably, and 47% said the process had no impact on their view of the party. the poll also shows how mitt romney's approval rating compares with past presidential candidates. romney gets 28% approval, lower than mccain, kerry, bush, and dole during the same point in the race. and looking at the general election, head to head match-ups against president obama, all four republican contenders fall short. mitt romney is the closest, six points behind the president. on the question of congressional preference, 41% say republicans are the preferred majority in congress. 46% would rather see democrats in charge. and when asked which party does a better job of appealing to people not among its hard core supporters, 55% said the democratic

see this when mitt romney puts forward a very weak statement about rush limbaugh saying those aren't the words he would use. what are the words he would use to describe sandra fluke in the gross and horrible terms? i think the real issue is that you have seen the intense partisan nature of this debate really reflecting badly on the gop and they have been willing to put this face forward, rush limbaugh, on the issue has meant that women have woken up and recognized basic health protections that the republican party stands against them. >> the republican party response is not a huge concern, the real women's issue in the campaign is the economy, we just heard ann romney talking about the cost of milk and gas. a new washington post poll shows gas prices are hurting the president. what do you think, ez za, ezra, are the cultural wars creating something more significant long term? >> first, i like neera's coining of rush law for rush limbaugh. we have seven to eight months until the election and will this issue decline quickly or will people forget about it in six months? will people be

to cnn's exit poll, what drove conservatives and middle income voters to rally around mitt romney. governor romney scored a decisive win in illinois, took home 47% of the vote to nt is snt's 35% of the vote, and that win helped mitt romney pad his del lat count, now at 562, senator santorum has less than half at 249. mitt romney is taking new jabs at president obama. >> we once built an interstate highway system, and the hoover dam. now we can't even build a pipeline. i mean, we once led the world in manufacturing and exports, investment. today we lead the world in lawsuits. you know, when we replace a law professor with a conservative businessman as president, that's going to end. >> talking about himself, of course. last night no doubt a big blow for rick santorum. you'll remember that he had predicted if he won, if he won illinois he'd win the nomination. listen. >> i predict if we are able to do what i know most people think is impossible, which is to carry the state of illinois, that will fundamentally change this election like no other contest to date. it will put us in a po
